Finally, I’ve got the darn thing.

Good: feels like a sturdy, high-quality device. It’s fun using semi-exotic hardware. The screen is great and the keyboard is fine. The price, obviously.

Not so good: The trackpad is kind of wonky (I’m hoping this can be fixed in firmware). The speakers are a joke. The semi-exotic hardware isn’t yet fully supported by the official Linux kernel yet, so some features are hit or miss. For example, I’m writing this from Manjaro, which works great– except that suspend isn’t working yet.

In general, I’m happy with the purchase. I’m going to try to stick with it as my primary (non-work) machine.
